Swing Keel - New Plate

It has been suggested to me that as my current plate is beginning to corrode it could be worthwhile replacing it with a stainless steel one. I'm concerned this could alter the weight down below but presumably corrosion would, if it's fitted properly, become a thing of the past. Has anyone done this?...

Good choice Derek. My Dockrell 22 was my first real taste of sailing of any kind. She seems reasonably nippy if you work the wind and tides on this stretch of the Devon Coast (Salcombe) even though she has bilge plates. According to the GPS I probably average between three to four knots over the gro...

Lifting Keel (or not as often happens)
